This was Miss Anthony's first meeting with Lucy Stone and may be called the commencement of her life-long friendship with Mrs. Stanton.

I had not seen her for some months, and I thought she looked thin and pale. As we went upstairs together our two figures were reflected in the big mirror on the first landing one all grey and brown, the other all white, and pink, and gold.
